Full Match Report Later - In fact, I'll catch up on them all tomorrow.

Dundee sacrificed flair and artistry for hard work and fight against Hibs today, and it paid off. Left out were ball artiste Beto Carranza and the skillful Torres, whilst top scorer Juan Sara was kept on the bench.

In came Argentine Under-21 goalkeeper Julian Speroni, who turned on a great performance and instilled confidence in his defence. Teenager Gavin Beath made his debut and played a big part in the win. New signing Frenchman, Kemes, came on late and turned the game with a great display of running off the ball and battling for everything up front. He deservedly set up the winning goal for FAN ZHIYI. Temuri Ketsbaia was the man of the match and was simply scintillating in the second half.

In what has been a damaging, hurtful week for the fans, what with the press having a field day and making Dundee their number one priority to attack, it was heartening to see the players reply in such fashion.
